The 2013 Porsche Boxster S, which recently debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, just clocked in an impressive 7:58 on the Nürburgring.

That makes the new Boxster S a tick faster than the Chevy Corvette C6 (7:59), Dodge Viper SRT-10 (7:59), and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe (8:01). The Boxster S is powered by a 3.4-liter flat-six engine packing 315-hp and a 4.7-second 0-60 time. The 3.4L is mated to a six-speed manual as standard, but a seven-speed PDK dual clutch transmission is available as an option. Also optional is a Sport Chrono Package with Dynamic Transmission Mounts and a Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) mechanical differential.

Compared to the more powerful Porsche 911, the Boxster S is about 18 seconds slower on the ‘Ring, but still impressive given the cars it bests.
